All of us most likely went through a 'special' fashion phase in our young years. Apparently, there was one that made kids look at least 20 years older. The best part? We have photographs, so now we can have a good laugh about it. Go ahead and share those priceless moments when you looked like you were in your middle ages while being a child.

The haircut, the umbrella, the necklace, the robe, and even the pose are embarrassing. This one is the best!

In the 80's I said 70's fashion was dead. In the early 2000's I thought people would have to be certifiably insane to repeat the 80's. As horrific and traumatizing as the early 90's were, don't let your guard down. It could flare up like a bad case of herpes at any moment.

Actually, this was me. I assure you, I was 12; it was 1991. Unfortunately, I did not grow up to be nearly as attractive as advertised, but still managed to find a great husband and our kids are better looking than either of us.
